Court: ‘Bookkeeper of Auschwitz’ Fit for Jail

From Reuters:

A German court ruled today, Wednesday, that a 96-year-old German known as the “bookkeeper of Auschwitz” was fit to go to prison, rejecting his plea for the sentence to be suspended.

Oskar Groening, who is physically frail, was sentenced to four years in prison in 2015 for his role in the murder of 300,000 people at the Nazi death camp Auschwitz.

However, he had not started serving his sentence due to a legal argument about his health.

    Not severe enough?! What did he do to deserve such a long sentence, especially at his age? He did nothing wrong. He was only convicted out of an exaggerated sense of German guilt and the need to be seen to do something now that all the actual nazis are dead, so they seized on this guy, a normal decent person, not a hero by any means but certainly not a villain, and decided to make him a korban so they could feel good about themselves. What would you have done in his place?
